Bob’s Burgers "The Horse Rider-er" Review - AVClub

AVClub: Tonight’s Bobs Burgers has an intriguing dilemma before it. On the one hand, the episode introduces Tina’s imaginary horse Jericho, voiced by none other than America’s sweetheart, Paul Rudd. As castings of nonhuman guest stars go, that’s right up with bringing in America’s more broodingly masculine sweetheart, Jon Hamm, to play a talking toilet. The key distinction between the two, however, is that the talking toilet didn’t just exist in Gene’s imagination, a fact that allowed it a more versatile role in its episode. Jericho—and here comes the “on the other hand”—can only ever talk to Tina, and the show has to be careful in just how often the two do interact, lest Tina come off as, well, a bit delusional. “The Horse Rider-er” does get to a point at the end where Tina riding her imaginary horse in front of everyone plays as an endearing, heartfelt moment, but this necessitates a long gap in the middle of the story in which we don’t see Jericho, which by extension means we don’t get to hear from Paul Rudd.

The story is too old to be commented.
